Favorite Quotes from Kid Fury

“I think I’ve built a platform for myself to express humor and to just live as authentically as I know how and to also invite myself to learn new things about people in the world, and myself.” – Kid Fury 

“I don’t know if I saw many images that reminded me too much of myself as a kid. I know that I saw lots of great black sitcoms that I gravitated toward, my family played “Martin” all of the time, and I watched “In Living Color” growing up.” – Kid Fury 

“Comedy is the thing I think that saved my life many times. I was always really enamored by standup as an art form, I haven’t even really practiced it as much as I’d like to, or as much as many other standup comedians do, but I always loved Def Comedy Jam. I loved Bernie Mac, I loved Redd Foxx, I loved Martin, of course, everybody with the last name Wayans.” – Kid Fury 

“I feel like the best jokes are the jokes that take place around the really uncomfortable territory. And the best comedians are the ones who are able to perform those jokes in smart ways that aren’t just typical and offensive and lazy.” – Kid Fury 

“I’m not even really sure how to answer that simply because it was never anything that I really thought of as more than having certain people around me that I’m, like, do you know that you’re really funny, or do you know that you have something to offer?” – Kid Fury 

 

3 Important Lessons from Kid Fury

Now that you know all about Kid Fury’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him:

 

1. Treat Your Employees Well

Yes, the kid’s stunt was probably an innocent bit of fun, but I wonder if he would have done it had he loved the company? Why was he leaving anyway?

 

2. Document Your Policies

I’m not 100% convinced that a formal Social Media Policy is necessary – especially if your Employee Code of Conduct is up to scratch – but in any case, you need to document what your employees can and can’t do on social media. And you need to ensure they know it.

 

3. Scan the Web For Mentions of Your Brand

In this age of Web 2.0, if you don’t scan Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare and other forums for mentions of your brand, you don’t know what your customers (and prospective customers, and employees, and ex-employees) are saying about you.

That means you can’t respond.
